Great-looking stars in a thoroughly predictable film.
Another one of those "if you've seen the video cover, you've seen the movie" thrillers. Quite honestly, I can't understand where some people saw the "twists" here; "Dream Lover" is as predictable as yesterday's news and as obvious as its overwrought dream scenes. Essentially this is nothing more than a more expensive, better acted and directed version of those Shannon Tweed/Andrew Stevens straight-to-video soft-core thrillers. But Spader and Amick do make an attractive couple, and there are some genuinely erotic moments in the early parts of the film, so as long as you know why you're watching the film (it's certainly not for the "twists"), you'll probably be satisfied.
